Not Another Challenge?

So 3M (who must have found a way to have 36 hour days, I've gotta find her secret), has proposed yet another challenge. She's calling it the 15 Books in 15 Decades challenge, and the rules are a little flexible (thank goodness, otherwise there's just no way I could consider it.) It's pretty self explanatory, pick some books in consecutive decades to read by the end of 2007. There is a prize! I'm going to check my TBR and see what I've got hanging out before committing.

Now, I've already signed on for the TBR challenge, the A-Z author challenge, and I'm part of a Yahoo! group reading prize winning novels. For that group, our first book is for April, The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai, winner of the Booker Prize. I'm planning to try and talk Shawna into signing up for this one as well, I know she wanted to read this book at the least.

Last night after finishing I Feel Bad About My Neck, I picked up Marion Keyes' Under the Duvet to read a few more personal essay type things. It's pretty humorous, reminds me strongly of Meg Cabot. Keyes is younger than Ephron, and I think easier for me to relate to. Under the Duvet looks to have been originally published in the UK in 2001, but in 2004 in the US. So it's a little dated. This will make it easy to move Rachel's Holiday up the list, which is good, as it's one of my TBR challenge books and I am behind! I have to get two of those read by the end of the month.

Other books I desperately want to read this month:
Gotta finish Sufficient Grace (almost done).
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
The next Sookie Stackhouse, which is on it's way to me in the mail.
Some other book from the TBR challenge, in addition to the already mentioned Rachel's Holiday.

This is a lot of reading in one month for me, better get on it!
